    Thought a seperate thread was due!

    So: Red Dwarf! Fave episodes? Characters?

    The very first episode is amongst my favourite - altho Polymorph II is a stonker!

    As for the red dwarf movie: from what i understand they ditched plans to make one when fans expressed thei disatisfaction.

    The more recent series (imho) were a lot worse because they had a budget! The special effects weren't crap enough!!

    Holoship, Better than life, Back to Reality, Backwards.

    Lister and Kryten

    The Movie is still on, they are still working the logistics out on it though.

    Favorite scene when Lister wakes up from stasis on star bug (I know plot flaw) and he trims his fingernails in a pencil sharpener. :D:D:D

    Was that Psirons?

    (That episode had a great lines..

    Kryten: Look sirs, that one seems to have written something with his entrails.
    Cat: Who writes stuff with their guts?
    Lister: Someone who is in desperate need of a pen....)

    Anyone remember:

    Lister: Launch proton torpedoes!
    Kryten: Well, sir. I feel the need to mention two things...

    And sooooo many more.:D

    Smegheads the lot of you! It's all about the first episode of the 8th Season and better than life :D glad people know of red dwarf here :D


    What's so great about red Dwraf are the great lines of the Characters hers' an example from "holoship"
    RIMMER: Another vessel?
    LISTER: Too small. (Presses some controls.) May be a missile.
    KRYTEN: Impact in 37 seconds.
    HOLLY: Plotting random evasion course.
    CAT: What? Am I the only sane one here? Why don't we drop the defensive
    shields?
    KRYTEN: A superlative suggestion, sir, with just two minor flaws. One,
    we don't have any defensive shields, and two, we don't have any
    defensive shields. Now I realise that, technically speaking, that's
    only one flaw but I thought it was such a big one it was worth
    mentioning twice.


    P.S
    If anyone would like the Scripts from the 1st Season to the 7th PM and i'll E-mail it to ya

    Or how about these lines:

    Rimmer: alright, lets go to red alert...
    Kryten: Sir, you do realize that it would involve changing the lightbulb...

    DVD out in Japan

    Just bought the second box set of Red Dwarf here in Japan.

    Box 1: 5 disks in all with 4 disks episodes 1- 24 and disk 5 'The Smeg Ups' (out takes)

    Box 2: Another 5 disks - 4 full of episodes 25 - 52 and disc 5 'The Smeg Outs' (more out takes)

    All with original English or dubed Japanese (which is great when drunk). Watched the first 24 episodes back to back after work for 3 days to finish them off and will do an all-nighter on Saturday for the second box set...

    That will cover season 1-8...how may seasons were there?

    I agree.

    Fave episode: Quarantine!

    Fave Character: Camille and Mr. Flibble

    Rimmer in a Gingham dress and HIS Mr Hat - Mr Flibble! Classic!!!

    "...So you want to fly on the magic carpet to see the Potato-King. Well Mr. Flibble thinks your crazy..."

    Which Holly did you prefer? Man, Woman or Queeg?

    Red Dwarf is among, if not, the best television shows ever. I liked polymorph as well as the one where rimmer has to escape from himself. I think the best episodes were when the crew was actually on red dwarf with the rest of the crew. Another great episode is "pete".

    I would have a good curry or vindaloo if you've got it. Otherwise, a lager would be preferred.;) :)

    It's funny, when Red Dwarf started i was just starting to go to pub's, albeit underage, and was convinced i was the king of cool when playing pool and keeping my ciggerete, lit; wedged in me earhole, until it fell out one day - probably while i was on the black - and burnt a hole in my shirt and singed my collarbone!

    What a smeee!
    What a smeeee, heeee...:D

    Dave must've just had as bad ears as his feet to allow the suction and glue to allow the cig to stay!

    Re: DVD out in Japan




    damn, you're lucky, here in america they've just brought out series one and two on dvd, and they cost a pretty penny i can tell ya. i think the next two series are gonna be released next year, then another year for 5 and 6 so i hear, or something stupid like that. hmmm, does amazon have a site in japan?? maybe i'll order the set you got. i grew up watching red dwarf and i can hardly remember a thing about it with regards to quotes etc.

    What was that hillarious episode (of course, being SO MANY hillarious episodes, you probably wouldn't remember...) where Lister was tongue-kissing that disgusting insect-like alien, and actually thinking it was a beautiful woman?!?

    Was THAT the "Polymorph" episode?

    I pi$$ed myself laughing at that one...

    :D
